your brakes are shot :-)

Not bloody likely.

Most cars can decelerate from 60-0 in less
than 200 feet.  Care to accelerate 0-60 in less than 200 feet?

In addition, you were trying to stop your car,
already going some speed.  The UI reports were
of monster cars that could accelerate from a stop
with the brakes on full.

Certainly it would be more difficult to stop
a car urnning full in 2nd.  I trust, however,
that you didn;t really test this very well.
You did keep your wits and turn off the key,
